Lightroom Classic v10.2 gives “Unexpected error opening catalog”

LrC v10.2 will not open my catalog, same problem I had with v10.1.1.  I roll back to v10.1 and it works perfectly.  I am using a 2017 iMac 27" with Big Sur 11.3 (the problem also existed with the last couple of iterations of Big Sur 11.2).

On the older version, if you optimize the catalog, or export as catalog (everything), then try with newer version, any luck?
